Incumbents Often Safe from Challenges
February 27, 2008 - More than half of the incumbents seeking reelection to school boards in Henry County's other four school corporations will face no challenges in the May 6 election.
Neither Beth Middleton nor Alan Troxell will face challengers for their respective Fallcreek Township (inside) and Jefferson Township seats on the Shenandoah School Board. Also, Blue River Valley School Board member Kent Grim (Blue River Township) and South Henry School Board members Randy Maloyed and Scott Lightfoot have no opposition in the upcoming election.
Four other incumbents on BRV, New Castle, Shenandoah and South Henry school boards, however, will face challengers. At BRV, incumbent James Griffith faces Terry Vaughn for an at-large position, while Bill Vaughn and Wayne Jacobs will battle for the Priarie Township seat now held by Terry Matney, who is not seeking reelection.
On the New Castle Community School Board, incumbent Richard "Dick" Leitch is running against Lourdes Davis and Jamey Marcum for an at-large seat. Fellow incumbent Michael Fleming faces challenges from Elizabeth Brooks-Whitmer, Mark Davisson and Larry "Chick" Stoots in a contest for the NC board's two "inside" seats up for election.
At Shenadoah, incumbent Scott Trennepohl faces that school corporation's only contested election. He is being challenged by Janice Coulter and Richard Warner. South Henry is the only Henry County school corporation that has no incumbents involved in a contested election this May, with their only contested race being between two newcomers, Chris Garner and Amy Miller, who are vying for the Spiceland Township seat. Because two of the board's Franklin Township seats are up for election, incumbent Lightfoot and newcomer Christine Castille are both guaranteed a spot on the board. As a "holdover" position, unchallenged incumbent Maloyed's new term will not begin until July 1, 2009, one year later than the others.
